The AHSAA Legislative Council has moved the start date of Cross Country and VolleyBall up a week to be the same start date for all Fall Sports. With that change, the first legal date of competition for the Cross Country season is Thursday, August 23rd.
The calendar is already filling up so be sure to get your meet dates online as quick as possible so teams can start planning where to go. I imagine this change is going to shake up a few early season meets.
